The G7 has been a disaster for Joe Biden and the United States. The president has projected weakness, both as a nation and personally, in ways that are hard to fathom. This is a guy who can’t even do a joint presser with Vladimir Putin because he’s afraid of being shown up.

While many Europeans may be supremely impressed by all this, I think most Americans recoil at leaders pretending to be royalty, flaunting their own rules, and generally projecting weakness to enemies of freedom everywhere. Putin and Xi Jinping
